True Love Will Find You In The End (Daniel Johnston Cover)

If you know of him, you may have an opinion that Daniel Johnston is a outsider genius, a troubled victim of hipster exploitation, or simply a not-so-typical independent musician who found his audience. If nothing else, his work is irrefutably full of sincerity and emotion. This little piece of his is one of the great American songs. [more inside]

Ozark Rag (Practice)

Another old fiddle rag interpolated with a new song by Mr. Corwin Bolt. We were all surprised by the ending. I love fiddle rags, and nobody can convince me that they haven't already come back in style. [more inside]

Like Math

The finished version of a song I posted back in February. Way louder this time around. Just thought y'all might be interested in hearing how this progressed once I got real drums, bass and guitar on it. It feels like I recorded that original demo at once yesterday and a million years ago. More of this kind of thing here.

Mouth of the Coldest Seas

A tribute to the ancient hidden source of all cold seas and those that watch over it. With vocals by my friend who sings in an actual early music choir! It's also got square waves, organs, and sometimes ambiguous chords.

The Elevator Clown

From the 12-21-14 Carbon 7 session Inter-Sol-Stice. We went from meeting every couple of months down to 1 or 2 a year, & I fell behind in mixing, so this was somewhat of a forgotten session. A minor epic at 18 minutes, but it holds together. [more inside]

Long time no tunes! A simple tune on the classical guitar, sketched out after my daily struggle to learn Chopin & Satie songs. Birds, for interest.

My high school days, come back to haunt me. I was such a metalhead back then, and not a very good producer so don't bank too much on sound quality. [more inside]
